Germany: May Industrial Production

Total German industrial production (i.e. including construction) came out well above market expectations in May, increasing by 2.6% y/y (vs. consensus +0.3% m/m), more than fully offsetting the 1.3% m/m decline recorded in April. The y/y rate of change jumped from 1.4% y/y in April to 3.1% y/y in May (vs. consensus 1.5% y/y). The 3M/3M rate of change improved from -1.2% in April to +0.3% in May. Manufacturing & mining production rose 2.7% m/m in May, following the 1.6% m/m fall posted in the month before. May has continued the run of highly volatile monthly readings.

The sharp increase in IP output in May was driven by a 6.5% m/m rise in consumer goods, a 3.0% m/m increase in intermediate goods and a 3.1% m/m increase in construction (which leaves this sector on track for a strong gain over the quarter). In a less positive note, capital goods rose 0.9% m/m, after a 1.4% decline in April.

Assuming a flat reading in June, industrial production would rise 0.8% q/q in 2Q18, following +0.1% q/q in 1Q18 and +0.8% q/q in 4Q17, while manufacturing & mining output would increase by 0.6% q/q in 2Q18, following +0.1% in 1Q18 and +0.9% q/q in 4Q17. Therefore, despite the improvement in the May report, the manufacturing sector in Germany continues to show a weaker evolution when compared to last year.
